Highlight of having family visit

My husbands parents and grandmother, 95 years young, came to visit us, we are locals so we have pretty good knowledge of the best places to dine in the area. This evening we visited Marina Cafe, with children, 12 and 6, and a spry 95 year old. We were seated in a prime area, not tucked off in a... read more

From the greet at the door to the drop of our check our experience was perfect. Great food and service, and an excellent view. If you have a bad experience here it's your own fault for bringing kids or your family.

Not impressed with service or food. Definitely not kid friendly. The waiters was literally going to read us the whole menu. The whole dining experience took Way too long. The waiter totally messed up our checks for multiple couples in our party even though I repeatedly tried to tell him who was on who's check. Only plus side was fact... More

Tried the coconut cream pie ! Outstanding. Can you tell this is my favorite restaurant in Destin ? Drove 45 minutes in traffic from... More

We stopped by on our way to a Sunset Dolphin cruise. We thought it looked to formal of a setting, but Mickie convinced us to come in. She was very engaging and pleasant. The food was fantastic. The view of the marina was great and we will definitely be back.

We dined as a family of 12 kids and adults and the experience could not have been better. In the style of restaurant where so often service can be smug towards tables of families, our server Chris was exceptionally attentive to our (sometimes special) needs, and even politely opted NOT to add the normally automatic 18% gratuity to our large...

Our experience was excellent! The service was prompt, accommodating and friendly. We ordered the Gulf Shrimp Spring Rolls, Wedge Salad, the Red Fish and the Bistro Steak. It was all delicious and the Red Fish was unique and especially good. The view is also very nice.

My sister's Friday night go-to (they've been going there every Friday night for over 5 years), Marina's has delicious pizza. They have a soft yet chewy crust, and are happy to mix or match toppings to your heart's content. Family run with a simple yet comfortable atmosphere.
